Nice little bike, if thats your bike inthe pics it's easier to mend than replace parts like those.
I'm not far from you, north of Salisbury.

Check in later today  I will see what info I can dig out.

I used to be well into French bikes, had several, but all now sold apart from a Mobylette.
Consider subscribing to a magazine called 'La Vie de la Moto', for info re 'bourses" but be aware their jumbles are nothing like ours for abundance of spare parts. There is a big show at Vincennes, Paris just before Christmas,which is do-able in a day, worth a visit. usally lots of older stuff, and generally all the dealers mentioned here.
you'll need LOTS of money.


Ok here goes

I a have three issues of Moto Legende which is THE mag for old french stuff.

One conatins what they call a dossier, like a short manual
next  one a longer in depth survey
then one with an article covering ' les Popus' the french workaday bikes from Peugeot, Motobecane Terrot.
you are welcome to them.
Then I have a book covering the above three makes of 'Popus', contains road tests etc. I'd want money for that.

on ebay.fr I have found

can't find any chainguards,but I'm sure one of the other dealers will stock one. They are simple to make. some of them supply the odd secondhand [occasion] part.

That should do you to be going on with, you can PM me if you want more help.

I'd scan in the mags but I am near the bottom of the bottle and its late.

pointless trying to find parts in the UK, but those dealers are helpful I have used them all; and although there is not much older stuff on ebay.Fr  it is worth looking.
 The keyword is collection, moto collection, du collection. I have always had good service with french sellers of bike stuff, although there is the odd one that will not sell out of france.
Do some research on the net re french postage rates they vary considerably and will be expensive,especially parcels.

It helps to speak french if you want a reply, in fact its almost obligatory.
If you talk really bad french, [google mangles it very well,] generally the french will then show off the superiority of their education by speaking good english back to you.

Where are you? I have a number of books and mags  on french bikes.

feu rouge
cercle de phare
bouchon reservoir
grippe genoux
couverture a gauche is the best I can do  wthout more info
garde de chaine
what do you mean by splash guard?

lets have some pics.

As has been said annciennes.net is hard to get a response from, as is le boncoin; not all the french are on the net.

There are no clubs for Peugeot in the UK

Ah but I did once buy one in  a weak moment. which is why I asked about the fuel tank

two tone beige, sold to a guy nr liverpool in the 1990s, gel coat or not there were dirty crack lines lines in it in places. I found a pic of a similar fault earlier but can't now, dammit.

I only have a yen for an LE out of sentiment sake, I knew the last of the Met police ones when I worked for them, they did sterling service around London, and I met my wife via one.
I sold it to her, then rode it from Bromley Kent, M1/M45 over to George Yeomans original old place when it was run by him, it went bang on the return journey near Rugby. Shame but not really the fault of the bike.

I never buy tat, repro or not.
2hrs from me, might be worth a run.

I  might go, but please sell it before hand ::)

Whats it like for bike stuff? same old traders and unsold  tat from Netley and Kempton?

I just remembered  the worst bit was all the cracking fibre glass on the one I once owned,[briefly].
so its an LE then I reckon ::)

I must be sicker than I thought then, as looking at that last pic I find it quite pleasing.

Gutless it maybe but these days  I' not bothered, my Honda 90 is fast enough.

When is this Malvern anyway? never been to it.

funny how that makes people say yuk, who would droool over a Black Prince?

I knew a bloke who rode one to work back in the 60s, us lads didn't mock the style, but the indicators he liked to use. Mind you he got to work cleanerand drier than I did.

I have always had a soft spot for these sorts of bike, what that Vogue needed was a doubled up LE engine, 400cc and some decent brakes.

I expect the chinese will get round to one soon.

I am really looking for a cheapish late LE

 Thats reasonable,better if the screen was there, side panels as well?

  I need to scheme a bit, never been to Malvern jumble.

worst thing on these is if the integral fuel tank is leaking, a bit of a worry in these days of 'green' fuel and effinole shite.

If you think I'm sick, my daily ride is a ratty Honda 90 cub ::)

Agree those FN forks look a bit messy, but they are not Earles forks. They are FN own.
I was once on a french rally and a guy riding one had such a big grin on his face that when I saw one of a similar age here I bought it sight unseen.
That had the later version which was rubber sprung, frot and back. With the large saddle, as needed by fat belgian arses it was one of the most comfortable bikes I have ever ridden over rough surfaces.
Nice well built  engine with a design link to Sunbeams, only drawbacks was the clutch which was a sod to dismantle without the right tool, and one of those kickstarts which stubbed your toe everytime.
Yet another bike I wish I'd kept.

You too? ;)

If interesting forks turn you on look at a 1947 FN 450cc

  Hub centre steering..........No forks in the normal way of things.

I have only seen 3 or 4 bikes with that set up over the years; one with a sidevalve  V twin engine owned in the1980s by  a guy in london, he's now dead, one with a silver hawk engine now in Sammy Millers museum, the others I cannot properly recall.

I fear you'll be looking for a long time and need very deep pockets

I have found a entry for New Henly in a 1929 magazine. I will scan it in later

If that albion gearbox is two speed, [have you looked?] it would have been fitted with a 196cc Villiers engine
